An internationally published and award winning photo artist from Ukraine now based in New York, Anya Anti has been into photography since 2009. She’s always been a creative person – as a child she was good at painting and crafts. As her passion for art grew she fell in love with photography and started shooting the world around her. As a self-taught photographer, she gained all her knowledge and inspiration through social media and online photography communities. A year-and-a-half later, she started creating fine art surrealistic female portraits, which became her preferred genre and a hallmark of her work.
Installations, costumes and Photoshop manipulation help her to embody her fantasies into a finished piece of art. She shoots mostly with old vintage manual lenses like Helios and Petzval. Their imperfections help her be more creative and achieve that dreamy effect.
As a workshop instructor, she has already taught in different countries. She has showcased her work at exhibitions and been published all around the globe. In 2015 she was the lucky winner of a Broncolor GenNEXT sponsorship.
Anya is a dreamer. Photography is not only what she loves and what she does, it’s also a gentle and romantic side of her. It's a reflection of her deep emotions, passion for unknown and craving for beauty.
